Indra Das is a writer and artist. He also edits. He has played people in the backgrounds of TV shows, attended to the canine tenants of a dog hotel (that was once a slaughterhouse) during night shifts, tested video games in windowless rooms, acted as a variety of patients in exams for med school students, taught children and adults creative writing, and done other things to fake being an adult who can pay rent. He is a grateful Octavia E. Butler Scholar and graduate of the 2012 Clarion West Writers Workshop. He is also a graduate of the University of British Columbia's Creative Writing M.F.A. program (class of '11). Here you'll find some of his stories, nonfiction and art.
